, extremely interesting when president obama was asked about comments from his former opponent, john mccain, who made some nasty comments about susan rice, the united states ambassador to the u.n. and she may well be the head of the state department soon. here's the president responding in a very personal way. i thought this was really a moment here. >> let me say specifically about susan rice. she has done exemplary work. she has represented the united states and united nations with skill and professionalism and tough theness and grace. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. when they go after the u.n. ambassador, apparently because they think she's an easy target, then they've got a problem with me. and should i choose -- if i think that she would be the best person to serve america in the capacity -- the state department, then i will nominate her. that's not a determination i've made yet. >> why don't you be our u.n. interpreter right now and explain all the elements of that amazing response. it was personal, poignant, emot

i said, if you look more at the states where they -- the obama administration bombarded women with messages, you saw a much bigger gap. >> chris: it is interesting, because i was thinking of 2004 as we'll, the pendulum swings back and forth and after the 2004, which bush obviously had a lot of issues and, still won, the democrats were disspirited and four years later came roaring back, what do republicans need to do. >> two issues i'm thinking of, number one, four years ago, 2008, when some parts of the democratic party said this was a vote for a new progressive era and more left-leaning government and turned out that that was not quite the case and our party needs to be fairly modest then mandate we take away from this and governor from the center-out, progressive center, one and two, i'm thinking of 1988 from the republicans' perspective. democrats had lost two elections in a row to ronald reagan. and what did we do? nominated michael dukakis, a fine man but a liberal from massachusetts and the internal struggle republicans will go through, they have to be true to their prin

't find it hard to believe there are neighborhoods in the united states that president obama got 97 to 99% of the vote. the turn-out level strikes me as suspicious. philadelphia has been a administration that had irregular election procedures in the past. >> nor is philadelphia the only city where the numbers are raising eyebrows. in st. lucie county, florida, incumbent republican congressman allen west is crying foul over a limited recount of early voting that shrank the total numbers for west and his victorious democratic channeler murphy. murphy remained ahead by .57% enough to escape automatic recount of the all votes cast in three county that the district encompasses. >> i have seen there are some errors made there. at least there is reason to believe there might have been. this is a democratic county in a republican part of florida. >> weekend recount action in florida did reverse results of a mayoral race in fort pierce with a new verdict so close it triggered another recount. sunshine state automatic one. >> bret: thank you. authorities in indianapolis still don't know what caused
a bbc host. the election of 2012 now is officially in the books. president obama was awarded a win in the state of florida on saturday. that gave him 26 states and the district of columbia, for a total of 332 electoral votes. mitt romney won 24 states, with 206 electoral votes. the president outpolled romney by close to 3.3 million votes. those are some of the day's major stories. now, back to jeff. >> brown: arizona officials today declared that democratic house candidate kyrsten sinema won her race for the ninth district, which means she will be the first openly bisexual person to serve in congress. her election follows some strong messages sent last week by voters in favor of gay couples exchanging vows. ray suarez has our look. >> suarez: for the first time supporters of same-sex marriage won at the ballot box last week. after more than 30 losses. washington state, maryland, and maine became the first states to approve the practice by popular vote. and in minnesota, voters shot down a proposed state constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage. >> it means everything. all my fr
of state. president obama may ask the vietnam veteran to replace leon panetta instead it is unlikely he will stay on for the full second term. as for the secretary of state position it is widely believed that the president will nominate susran rice. rice appeared on five different sunday talk show in the aftermath of the terrorist attack and blaming the anti-muslim video saying it was terror. >> republican congressman paul ryan breaking his silence a week after he and mitt romney lost the election wants to get to work. >> the issues we talked about sevenyears ago are what we have today. economy and debt-crisis and i worry about our military. these same problems exist and we have to find common ground to make it work. >> when asked about running on 2016. he said he was tired of presidential pilots right now. >> gas rationing in new jersey came to an end. the was put in place after gas shortages that had cars lined up for miles. governor christy said all supplies are replenished. darkness continues in long island. two weeks and no power. lifa claims that everyone who could get their power
their population. >> egypt has reached out to president obama and the united states saying help us stop the violence there. so, ken, the united states is going to get sucked into this, regardless? >> no, i don't think the united states is going to get sucked in. they've provided weapons and air dome to prevent rockets from coming in. i think the united states is much more interested in what impact will hamas' success or failure have upon the rest of the region. here, we have to think about jordan and king abdullah's instability. i think we worry about insurgencies in general, hezbollah and hamas. hezbollah, if it felt that hamas was successful, would it start something from the north? and i think israel, over the broader perspective, is very interested in being sure that hamas is put back on its heels and not able to attack israel. that becomes very important for israel in the long run if it decides some time in the future it wants to go after iran. it would be worried about retaliation and it certainly doesn't want it from the south, which would be hamas and certainly from the north, f

china's new president. xi first visited the united states back in 1985, met with president obama earlier this year. western analyst regards xi as someone who wants to have good relations with the united states. >>> china's struggling economy is just one of the many challenges that's facing the country's next leader. while, some chinese have done well, but others are falling further behind because of inflation. imagine this. paying five times more for rent than you did four years ago. that's right. while cnn senior international correspondent stan grant has an inside look at what is happening. china's widening wealth gap. take a look. >> this is a little piece of home. they gather here to dance on street corners and come to the cities searching for a bit of life. for some china's booming economy has been music to their ears. for others the tune has turned more somber. life in a rundown neighborhood so close to the riches of the new china that they could reach out and touch it almost. >> translator: we came to work in the city. >> reporter: and he his wife had followed the china dream to b
states. that's a mandate. it's unthinkable that any candidate can win anywhere close to that. obama won a pretty impressive victory even without a serious third party candidate, he did not get 51% of the popular vote. he won 26 states to romney's 24 states. we'll see time after time very, very close elections. we need to rethink the negotiations of mandates and say this person won the presidency. they need to go forward with that agenda. >> what about the republicans? are they going to do a big rethink here? >> yes, and more than one. it was interesting that the republican governors happened to be meeting this week in las vegas when this news about the interesting comments that romney made to his donors that we just saw and the republican governors, bobby jindal of louisiana did not miss five seconds before they really denounced what romney was saying. the republicans have a lot of things to think about, not of which is their growing problem with hispanic voters. that is the big growing group in this country. republicans are still largely a party of white people and older white people.
on the crisis. joining me is the former state department spokesman p.j. raleigh. are president obama's words strong enough in his defense of israel? >> absolutely. as he said in his remarks, no country should have to tolerate a barrage of missiles that put its entire population or a substantial percentage of its population at risk. israel has a right to respond. that said, obviously, how it responds and how it is viewed in this region, a fragile rv region given the events the last couple of years is very important. israel has some difficult calculations to make going forward. >> how about in terms of how chose we are to a middle east war, and if that happens what are the chances of u.s. involvement? how might that play out? >> that's the risk. we have a growing gaza crisis, a civil war in syria next door, unquiet along the israeli/egyptian border, substantial unrest in jordan. any flare-up in one of these, has potential to spread across to the other. most importantly, you have a fragile, you know, political systems. you have countries in transition. the populations and politics are more popu

departure of general david petraeus from the cia tells us more about the state of our nation than a dozen petraeus. president barack obama should not have accepted his resignation. we seem to care more about the sex lives of our leaders down their real lives of our soldiers. i want to pick that apart one piece at a time. he suggests that his resignation says more about the nation about him? what do you mean? >> it worries me that we can throw away the leaders so casually. general petraeus is one of the more prominent generals of our time. the only general the american public has really been known since world war ii. a lot of generals tried and failed in iraq. petraeus succeeded. here we have a leader who has done well. something happened between him and another person, a private consenting adults, nothing illegal, and we throw him out. i do not think we can afford to do that. we did not use to do that. dwight eisenhower carried on with his chauffeur, a very good- looking red-haired british woman. he was not fired. ike, you gotta go home, you had an affair. that would be crazy. that is kin

case and the election case, but 30 republican governors, they are vital to creating a state run exchanges. the obama administration can't just ignore republican ideas, they have to have a conversation about ways to fix the obamacare legislation or reform it so it actually will work. right now it is slated not to work and be a bigger mess. cheryl: 2014 is not very far away. the states are not prepared with these exchanges. what are you hearing? >> i am hearing that. one of the reasons is the obama administration was waiting until after the election to go forward with the regulations telling states how to go forward. politico has a piece talking about how there will be the regulations not only affecting the states and how they run their exchanges but also affecting businesses and specifically the insurers and how they can prepare products that will be salable, so waiting on the regulations of a political purpose will not help getting the law implemented in a clear and clean way. cheryl: want to ask about the issue of medical device makers and that new tax coming, that hit a lot of
